Installation Information


Installation

The installation of your cabin can be tailored to suit your needs, with you deciding on which of the available options you would like to take advantage of.

It takes into consideration the delivery of your cabin and we will co-ordinate everything to ensure the erection is as prompt and efficient as is possible. Our experienced installers will liaise directly with you to explain the build process and overcome any potential difficulties prior to the build date.

Base

The base offered is a 10cm thick concrete slab which will provide the foundation for the cabin. This takes approximately a day to lay, it includes the preparation of the ground, making of the performer and the mixing and laying of the concrete.

Please note: The price listed on the cabin options is calculated based upon the assumption that the ground is level and no soil will need to be removed from the site. Any additional groundworks may incur an additional charge.

Electrics

Our install team include a qualified electrician, registered with NICEIC and able to provide the necessary registration of electrical work.

This option consists of an armored cable (maximum 0f 30mm) from the property to the cabin, this is usually above the ground attached to a fence but can be buried for additional cost – this will be calculated dependent on distance.

We will fit a consumer unit into the cabin, this will then split into a socket and a lighting circuit, protected by a RCD (residual current device) in accordance to 17th Edition BA7671 (amendment 3rd January 2016).

The electrician will aim to place 4 double sockets and a light in every cabin, though any additions/alterations can be discussed either when you place your order or at a later date.

Roofing

Cabins will need to be fitted with either roofing tiles or roofing sheets.

Tiles will give a lasting and durable finish to the cabin roof whilst maintaining an aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Roofing Sheets are fitted to cabins with a gradient not suited to tiles. We work with either bitumen sheets or EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer). Both of these give a water tight finish preventing leaks.

Insulation

We can insulate the roof and the floor of a cabin, we do this by using a ridged insulation this is 50mm thick in the rook and 25mm in the floor and is fitted between the bearers or joists of the cabin.

Fitting the insulation will allow the cabin to stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer, reducing the overall running costs for the heating.

If required, we are also able to offer 70mm insulation option on the purchase of twin wall models increasing the u-value of the cabin.

Cabins will come with a wooden tongue and groove flooring as standard but we do recommend laminate flooring in all living areas on top of this for a durable surface that can be cleaned easily.

Painting

All cabins supplied will need some form of weather protection, they are not made from treated timber. This can be undertaken by the team, please enquire for the cost of this as it will vary depending on the type of product used. We do recommend the following: Osmo, Cuprinol Shades, Sadoline and Barretine Log Cabin Treatment.
